Ernst Ludwig Kirchner is one of the greatest German artists of the early twentieth century. Yet Kirchner was a multi-talented figure and his work encompassed various media—painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, photography, and even the decorative arts. These three phases are presented in the main galleries on the third floor of the Neue Galerie, alongside a small room dedicated to his work during the war years. In these prints, he was at his most experimental, producing art of rare beauty and strong emotional appeal. He was profoundly affected by the experience of military training during World War I.
Of course, it did those, too. It was also an ingenious way to articulate subjective experience in an increasingly materialist modern world. At first, Kirchner worked to capture mood and life force by turning real colors up to unreal volumes. Think of the first icy trickle of water in a riotous springtime brook. Everything is rendered with the same impatient dashes, but while Frisch himself is an orderly chorus of lighter or darker blues, the sofa beneath him is a cacophony of olives, scarlets and pale, bilious yellows.

Comprised of a 35mm short-film, an experimental animation, and a series of new photographs, White's current body of work is the culmination of three years of research and production. This exhibition, titled The Girl Studies, presents the broadest range in his practice to date and further evolves his specifically American cultural critique. The Girl Studies premieres White's first film, American Minor, a 35mm short that meditates on the isolated world of an American teen girl.

Eugene Smith, expanded his interest in photography. Leiter's earliest black and white photographs show an extraordinary affinity for the medium.
